Smoking woods for poultry

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by beerthirty, Nov 24, 2009.

  1. I was reading an above thread about using hickory for smoking your yard bird however does anyone use mulberry? I have some mulberry as well as some apple chips and hickory and I haven't decided which to use or maybe a mixture of a couple of the above. What does everyone think about mulberry as a lighter smoking wood?

    never tried it but a google says in about.com that it is similar to apple....so in that case...go for it... if you trust about.com.

    My thoughts....Try it with a chicken hind quarter or even a full one....then you know for sure.

    Mulberry an apple will work tagether, but the hickory will over power both. Best to use it by itself in my experience. I like a stronger smoke personally an hickory is my favorite.

    Apple an there cousins are very good on poultry as is maple.
     
  4. Thanks, think that I will be adventurous and use all mulberry...maybe. Or do just like travcom and use hickory again. Guess I'll wait until Thursday morning to decide. I'll decide for sure by then, I hope.
